Swerve! A$AP Rocky, Gucci Mane, and 21 Savage get “Cocky” on their new collaboration from the upcoming movie Uncle Drew.
Produced by London On Da Track, the ballers’ anthem kicks off with a verse from Savage. “Too many bad bitches,” he raps. “I don’t ‘cuff ’em, I just hand ’em off like a layup / I ain’t got time to lay up / Met my accountant at Ruth’s Chris, she told me that I’m way up.”
Basketball lines continue throughout the track. “I want another ring, girlies buckle at the knees,” raps Rocky. “Swerve ’em like the other team / You can still hear the sneaks / Ballin’ in some Dungarees / Make a cheerleader cream.”
Guwop handles the chorus (“Too fuckin’ cocky, baby, I’m so fuckin’ cocky”) and then takes over the third verse with a nod to Jermaine Dupri, who recently became the second hip-hop figure to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. “So So Def to these suckers,” he raps. “I’m like JD in ’03.”
Uncle Drew is a Charles Stone III-directed comedy that features Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving in the leading role. Inspired by the Pepsi commercials which depict him as an elderly baller, the film features NBA greats Shaquille O’Neal and Reggie Miller, as well as comedy all-stars Tiffany Haddish and Nick Kroll. The movie hits theaters June 29.
